Jazzon je prvenstveno strokovna nagrada za jazz kompozicijo, ki jo na podlagi javnega razpisa in po oceni strokovne komisije vsako leto podelimo v sklopu Festivala Jazzinty. V prvi fazi tekmovanja lahko avtorji prijavijo eno tekmovalno kompozicijo. Avtor skladbe mora biti državljan oz. imeti stalno bivališče v Sloveniji. Sodeluje lahko le s skladbo, ki še ni bila uradno izdana na nosilcu zvoka ali predvajana v medijih nacionalnega dometa (televizija, radio, internet). Komisija izmed vseh prispelih partitur izbere eno zmagovalno skladbo in zasedbo, ki izvede koncert v sklopu festivala Jazzinty.
